Charlotte Hornets Betting

The Hornets are still smarting from a double overtime loss to the Atlanta Hawks. While it would be best for them to try and bounce back, facing the Heat comes at a bad time. Defense has been a big problem and facing a loaded team like Miami will likely expose that some more. Tasked to lead the offense anew are Terry Rozier and Devonte Graham. But as seen in their last loss, Rozier and Graham need help from the bench. If that does not come, it will be a long night for Charlotte.

Players to watch: T. Rozier PG 63 GP 63 GS 34.3 MIN 18 PTS 0.8 OR 3.6 DR 4.4 REB 4.1 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.2 TO 2 PF 1.8 AST/TO 14.91 PER

D. Graham PG 62 GP 52 GS 35.1 MIN 18 PTS 0.7 OR 2.7 DR 3.4 REB 7.5 AST 1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.8 TO 1.9 PF 2.6 AST/TO 15.67 PER

M. Bridges SF 64 GP 63 GS 30.6 MIN 12.9 PTS 1.3 OR 4.2 DR 5.5 REB 1.8 AST 0.6 STL 0.7 BLK 1.5 TO 2 PF 1.2 AST/TO 12.21 PER

Miami Heat Betting

The Miami Heat will only have themselves to blame if they drop this one against the Hornets. They are looking to make it two straight wins and oddsmakers see them doing so. However, that depends on how coach Erik Spoelstra will adjust. Jimmy Butler is questionable due to a toe injury, meaning the other guys need to step up. Goran Dragic and Bam Adebayo need to take over plus some help from guys like Andre Iguodala. Defense could also make up for lost firepower. Miami has been playing great defense as well, meaning more bad news for Buzz City.

Players to Watch: J. Butler SF 54 GP 54 GS 34.3 MIN 20.2 PTS 1.8 OR 4.8 DR 6.6 REB 6.1 AST 1.7 STL 0.5 BLK 2.2 TO 1.4 PF 2.8 AST/TO 23.42 PER
